Moldavite - Emerald Gem of the Galactic Heart

Crystals and stones are each magical and unique in their own right; possessing certain properties and energies that not only resonate with each of us personally, but also resonate during certain periods of our lives when we are in need of the supportive energy they provide. Moldavite is one such extraordinary stone and one of the most powerful, which just so happens to share the same hue and vibrancy associated with the Heart Chakra and new energies of the times.Let's look further into some of the uniqueness of this precious stone.

Moldavite is a tektite-a mysterious group of glassy objects, that is the product of a meteor collision with Earth nearly 15 million years ago (14.8 to be exact) which created the Reis impact crater. It is believed to have fallen from the sky only once, over what is now called the Moldau River Valley in Czechoslovakia. Found only in the Czech Republic, these green gems are among the rarest minerals on Earth-perhaps rarer than diamonds, rubies, and emeralds (hence being a bit pricey).

Prized by humans for thousands of years, they are still given as gifts from royalty to royalty. Stories of legend associate Moldavite with the legendary Stone of the Holy Grail, an "emerald" said to have fallen from the sky, and a talisman for the healing of the Earth and having the power to accelerate one's inner growth and spiritual evolution. Even those not usually sensitive to the energies of stones, often feel the energy of Moldavite because it's undeniably powerful.

The stone can be purchased both in its natural beauty as a raw, amorphous stone, or as a cut and polished stone. Faceted Moldavites, some say, can have an intensified energy that is created by the cutting process. And if cut into geometric shapes it can also act as a type of laser. But again, it all depends on you and your intentions and the way the energy of the stone blends with your own. Whatever shape and type resonates with you, is the perfect choice always and will produce exactly the results you are looking for and needing. Like with anything, follow your intuition and heart. Higher prices don't denote personal fulfillment.
